Overnight Canoe Camping
Join us on a 21-mile overnight canoe trip on the James River from Eagle Rock to Buchanan. On day one, we'll go over basic canoe skills and paddle strokes before hitting the water with all overnight gear in tow. We'll paddle about 13 miles, encountering several class I and II rapids. After a fun day on the river, we'll camp out right along the river at Horseshoe Bend, complete with a guide-prepared dinner and dessert over the campfire. Day two will take us further down the river, past Richie's Falls, and several other rapids as we make our way to the take out in Buchanan. Transportation, equipment, guides, and food is included.
